it is with great sadness that I wish to share the following information, kindly transmitted by Prof. Kazumasa Wakamatsu, President of the Japanese Society for Pigment Cell Research (JSPCR):
On behalf of JSPCR members, I am very sad to inform you that Professor Emeritus Yutaka Mishima of Kobe University passed away yesterday. He was 87 years old. He successively held the first president of IFPCS (1990-1993) and also the first president of JSPCR. He made a significant contribution to the society. I would like to say my sincere condolence for his death. It is very sad, but he lived a full and vibrant life indeed.
President of JSPCR
Prof. Yutaka Mishima hosted the International Pigment Cell Conference (IPCC) in Kobe (Japan) in 1990 and was also Honorary Member of the European Society for Pigment Cell Research (ESPCR)
May he rest in peace.
Treasurer and Webmaster of IFPCS, on behalf of the IFPCS Council
very sad to learn about this. I would like to express my most sincere condolences. I had occasion to meet professor Mishima during his visit in Naples and appreciated his high interest in science and great energy. Indeed a great loss to all the pigment cell community and our Federation.
Today we are celebrating #BOARD21 a most timely and adequate campaign promoted by @The_EARA on Being Open about Animal Research Day. In Spain we’re proud about the @COSCEorg #transparency agreement on animal research launched in 2016, to which 147 institutions have already joined
I wish you a happy and much deserved retirement, and I hope you will be still around for a while to continue contributing and sharing your genetics wisdom on the universe of pigment genes, along with your @EuSPCR @PASPCR1 JSPCR, ASPCR and @ifpcs colleagues. https://t.co/9Da1WoQdYL
Our most recent review on the current knowledge of the mouse tyrosinase (Tyr) gene is published in @PCMR_Wiley Thanks to @DSeruggia @afernandezl28 amd S.Josa for this work, summarizing over 30 years of work on this unique color gene associated to #albinism
Interested in the genetics of pigmentation? @BillPavan group at @genome_gov @NIH and myself at @CNB_CSIC @CIBERER we have just launched an updated #colorgenes table listing 662 gene entries from human, mouse and zebrafish linked to @GeneticAlliance & #OMIM
